Reviews

Reviewer: Umphreak T - - July 31, 2007
Subject: They're definitely on fire
As of the writing of this review I haven't even heard the whole set. Actually I've only listened halfway into Tennesee Jed, but I can already tell that they are on fire! The rest of the set is sure to be bangin!

Subject: Need to go "LOSLESS" not an MP3 DL for archival.
Other than that it was awesome! rained during the Bands set but thier keyboardest kept th vibe by playing right through it..Most of the crowd started thinning by then and I was right infront of the stage! Actually exchanged a "nod" with Jerry and Bobby!! YAY... Need to figure out how to Download the 'LOSSLESS" formats for archival purposes. I like the convienience of just synching it up with he old MP3 player but cannot be used in the "traders" community. So if you just wanna hear the best day of my life...I think anyway..LOL then go for it or DL Tradrs Litle Helper and convert the OGG OR FLAC into .wave for your media player! MS.1/2 step is my favorite. I'm a wharf rat and dont usually do drugs or drink but that day I was, let's say that I was feeling pretty high!

Subject: franlkin's fire - 5 for the jam
The jam into the wharf rat is perhaps one of the highest points of the dead's onstage creativity. It is not a jam within a song, i.e., playin jams, or the limitless dark star jams. The jam starts in greatness and ends in greatness. The middle jam is perhaps the first live hint at what is to come - franklin and fire, hence I dub this part of the jam "franklin's fire".
